One Marshal self-extracted after being shot, officials said, and was taken to Shock Trauma. His condition is unknown at this time.
The incident follows closely on the heels of President Joe Biden’s condolences to families of two FBI agents killed in Florida on Tuesday. Biden said that law enforcement agents pay “a hell of a price” for their service.
“They put their lives on the line and it’s a hell of a price to pay,” Biden said from the Oval Office. “And every single day…by and large the vast, vast majority of these men and women are decent, honorable people who put themselves on the line. We owe them.”
